Six of us gathered for an early Bday celebration. Ages 19-78. All aspects of our meal that lasted from 5:30-8.30 Sunday evening were excellent. Crab cakes and duck well deserve their fame as signature fishes. Our server was friendly and accommodating but not unctuous and had a good command of the wine list. The ambiance was classy and welcoming and quiet enough for conversation but not so quiet that our joyous laughter would offend other guests. Best duck ever. Vegan yams very good as well as salmon dish. Serving timing was perfect so we never felt rushed.

Four of us were celebrating a birthday, and we each ordered different items off the menu. We were so happy with the quality of the food. Usually one or two entrees are good, but every dish was exceptionally good. From the cocktail, salad, entree to desert, a great dinner! We also like the cozy setting and the feeling that customers are important and well cared for. Most newer, more pricey restaurants act as though you are lucky to get a table. We will make Dahlia Lounge our go to dinner destination from now on.

We have been to the Dahlia Lounge a few times over the years. The food is always tasty. Ambiance is very nice, too. Our only issue this time was the overall attitude of the staff. We arrived about 40 minutes early, expecting to wait at the bar for our reservation time. The male host seemed irritated that we arrived early and seemed condescending when pointing out empty seats at the bar. The bar tender acted bothered when we ordered a bottle of wine from him. The hostess who seated us at our reservation time was very friendly and welcoming. Then the waiter was disinterested. He never stopped back to check in on us, to find out if we liked our meal or needed anything more. We spent more than $250 but generally did not feel appreciated as customers. We are not sure if we will go back. We go out to a lot of great Seattle-area restaurants. The total experience here was, unfortunately, not to the level of other top restaurants.

Dahlia Lounge offers consistently delicious food. It's always innovative with interesting combinations in a dish, but never pretentious. I hope this doesn't offend, because I mean it in the most complimentary way possible, but it's like high-level home cooking, taken to a celestial plane. I love everything from the delicious olives in the martini to that famous coconut cream pie. I hope Dahlia Lounge keeps on doing the Seattle Restaurant Week and the DineAroundSeattle because it makes it affordable for me.

Have been there twice in the past month, once for our 30th anniversary and once for Restaurant Week. Both times were great. I like it when places are upscale but not snooty.

Always a great experience at Dahlia Lounge - this time we ordered through the Seattle Restaurant Week's menu with the wine pairing. It was a great meal and of course ended with my favorite coconut cream pie.

This was our first dining experience at Dahlia Lounge. We were pleasantly surprised with all the staffs excellent service, the atmosphere and the food was exceptional. The food was a total new experience and since it was restaurant week, we were able to try the starter, entrees and the desserts at a reasonable cost. I love coconut so the coconut cream pie was heavenly!!!

Service was great.
Smoked salmon omelette was cold, biscuits were stale. The potatoes were not edible....double fried, previous nights, left over baked potatoes(?). Other entrees were good, but potatoes and biscuits were not.

Always a fantastic delicious experience. This time, we were meeting a good friend from out of town, wanted a place we could have some time to catch up and enjoy a wonderful meal. We enjoyed sharing the 'signature' Dahlia entrees with our friend - crab cakes, duck, steak - don't ever forget the fries on the sides menu - a must every time.

Absolutely amazing night, made more special by the staff and ambiance. Food we superb and that pie is obviously famous for a reason. The pear salad was great though maybe slightly overdressed. Still one of the better evenings out I have had in a long time thanks to you. Will definitely be back.

Great service and food. I am not a fan of the added 20% gratuity. TIPS stands for To Insure Prompt Service. It should be up to the digression of the customer to make that evaluation. This visit was it was not a problem. But often, it is.

It has been many years since we last went to Dahlia Lounge, and the place is still great. We had the Restaurant Week menu. The scallop crudo first course was really great. The main course of roast cod was quite good, but slightly overcooked. The server was great: attentive when we needed him, not hovering when we didn't need him, and he was a good help with the wine selection.

I was very underwhelmed by the pear salad, but the scallops were fantastic. I feel like there are some real stars on the menu, along with duds and average dishes. I would try to find a place a bit more consistent.

Went to Dahlia Lounge during Restaurant Week. Cocktails were good, but expensive. Starters (soup, salad), and main courses (fish, steak) were very good. Dessert was good, except for Coconut Cream Pie, which was not very good (whipped cream in a pie shell, some flaked coconut on top). A first class establishment.
